New Beauty Finds

Sometimes a gal (like myself) needs a small pick-me-up.  Who doesn’t?  And sometimes nothing fits that bill like a few new beauty finds.  Enter my favorite new things (a few of which I noticed on a friend and begged her to tell me what was making her look so glowy and gorgeous).  For the record, she was wearing Bobbi Brown High Shimmer lip gloss in Star (also here) and Benefit High Beam Highlighter, as she was kind enough to share.  After seeing how naturally beautiful and lit-from-within she looked, I ran out and bought them at my first chance.

In the process, I found two other products I’m loving: Benefit They’re Real Mascara (which has the raddest- and most effective- mascara brush I’ve found to date) and Bobbi Brown High Shimmer lip gloss in Bellini (which is actually a pale coral with a beautiful hint of sparkle– of which I’m normally not a fan, but the sparkle in these glosses performs the only job that lip sparkle ever should– making you look like an ethereal creature of perfection).

I don’t know if you could use the pick-me-up that some new beauty products brings, but just in case, I thought you should know.

Happy Tuesday (and Election Day!!  GO VOTE, Dear Citizens!)
